Germany v Israel Preview & Tips (31st May)
It’s Germany v Israel playing a friendly match this 31st of May. The friendly is set to start at 18:30 GMT.
Germany was shocked to the bones when Switzerland got five goals past them en route to 5-3 upset of sorts. The loss makes it two straight for Germany insofar as friendlies are concerned; they lost to France in February this year as well. The good thing is that both losses are friendlies and bear no form. But the bad news is that Euro 2012 is just weeks away from starting; surely you wouldn’t want the Germans to suffer any type of setback before the tournament begins.
Against Israel on the 31st, Joachim Low’s troop of Bayern Munich players will be back in action. All seven of them missed the loss against Switzerland; they were sorely missed in all parts of the park. Then again, Low could opt to play his main men sparingly against Israel for fitness concerns. The players have been going through intensive training regimens in the past days and a full game against the Israelis could make the Germans suffer some fitness concerns.
Israel suffered a defeat at the hands of Czech Republic in their last outing. Like the Germans, the Israelis are also coming off a loss in February, making it two straight defeats this year and five in their last six. A solitary win doesn’t make Israel that impressive, and they have continued to suffer when under the eyes of international footballing experts, fans, and players alike.
You wouldn’t expect Israel to do well against a well-statured team such as the Germans. In 2002, a friendly meeting against Germany resulted to a 7-1 thrashing with Miroslav Klose scoring a hattrick. Klose played against Switzerland last time out and he should be able to feature against Israel yet again, hoping to replicate a performance that crunched them 10 years ago.
Germany v Israel Betting Preview
Germany is too big for Israel for you to even consider a draw in this game. The Swiss upset that ensued over the weekend may not happen again now, Germany knows better than make the same mistake twice in a row. More importantly, Germany’s top players will be back and should be able to kick the ball around much to the Israelis’ dismay.
Verdict: A Germany win is on the cards, 3-0.
Germany to win this game at 1/5 comes with a hint of destiny, but if that sounds too ideal, then let’s just say the statistics can’t care too much for an Israel win. At a final score of 3-0, a Germany win is at 6/1; a repeat of that 2002 result, 7-1, is at 66/1.
Mario Gomez is back with a vengeance after missing the game against Switzerland. Look to him to score anytime at 1/2, 11/4 to score first. Marco Reus scored a second-half goal against Switzerland last time out. He is at 11/2 to score last, 6/5 to score anytime.
